H. E. Bell Lbr. Co. Pastures We have just emerged from a winter which, in the northern sections, has been one of the most severe in many years.

No season is welcomed by the dairyman as much as spring, and no month in the year as much as May. He has visions of relinquishing the multitudinous chores that have occupied his time and efforts during the long winter months. He sees the opportunity of getting into his fields and seeding early, that a bountiful harvest will be his in the fall. It is a big vision, but it carries with it some dangers. If the odor of newly turned soil, the verdancy of the grass, the music of the brooks, the songs of the birds, the brightness of the sun and the balminess of the air cause him to become restless and send his cows to pasture too early, he is sure to suffer later more than he will gain immediately.

Cows snould not be permitted to go to pasture until the grass is well started and contains an abundance of nourishment, and is not almost all water. Unless the pasture surface become dry, the cows will up and hast tramp out the grass. Pastures How's This?

robbed of the opportunity of getting a good start in the spring are never worth much all summer. Wise is the dairyman who curbs his enthusiasm, commands his patience and reconciles himself to do the winter chores a few extra days, for his pastures will serve better. A larger total volume of milk in addition to the maintenance of a better condition in his animals will result. Foodstuffs have been high this winter and are no cheaper now. Extra expense will be incurred by keeping the cows from the pasture a few days longer, but all Extra expense will be incurred thereby is justified and will be well paid before fall.

Do not send the cows to pasture too Dairy Farmer.
